Product Description

Review

"...a broad appeal to all levels of biology undergraduates, even the more zoology inclined, who these days will be unable to avoid learning about molecules. However, even they will be happy with the substantial chapters on evolution, which is afforded considerably…"  The Times Higher Education

Professor Terry Brown graduated from Queen Elizabeth College, London with a BSc Hons in Microbiology in 1974, and from University College London with a PhD in 1977.

Terry Brown has been active in genomics and biomolecular archaeology since 1989. He is particularly interested in the origins and spread of agriculture and has published a number of research papers that describe how examination of the genomes of wheat and maize can provide information on the history of cultivation of these crops.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By TheTeh on 9 Sept. 2008
Format: Paperback
This is an updated version (2006) which is significantly better than previous edition. Compared to Human Molecular Genetics (Strachan & Read), the Genome 3 is by far an easier textbook to read with excellent illustrations and an accompanying CD with all photos in jpeg or powerpoint ready figures - excellent for Lecturers who teach on the subject!! It has good introduction from DNA to genes to DNA replication /transcription/translation and more. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in molecular genomics especially undergraduates science/medical/dental students.

Not for graduate studies 14 Oct. 2007
By J. Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a graduate genome class. I will say that it was optional for the class but it is definitely written for the undergraduate level of genetics. If you are taking a graduate class with this book, think about taking something else or prepare to read many others books to fully understand the material. The book is great for a basic understanding. Lots of basic info and easy to read and understand.

Great book! 13 Dec. 2007
By G. Hudson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book! It takes some VERY difficult concepts and makes them much easier to understand. The way that the book is organized also provides a nice logical flow. Also, the CD that comes with the book has all of the figures and powerpoint slides of the figures on it, which makes for a nice study tool.

nice book 29 Nov. 2008

Easy to read and understand. Some of graduate students might feel it's undergraduate level, but if you are not going into genetics research this one is enough.
Genomes 3 23 Sept. 2013
By aspiringdoc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great figures and examples to support my genetics lecture course. It's paperback, which makes it somewhat affordable in comparison to most textbooks these days. It's a great reference for any biology student, grad student or genetics enthusiast.
Good Genetics Text in a Genomic Context 16 Nov. 2012
By R. Yusuf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this txtbk a couple years ago and refer back to it a few times a year to go over basic gene stuff. What I like about it is that it does a good job of getting to the basic stuff with simple diagrams (in my opinion).
